We love, love, love our first glimpse of Darren Criss on Glee. Darren plays Blaine, an openly gay student who's also an amazing singer at Dalton Academy.
Kurt's struggling to fit in at McKinley, so he's considering transferring to Dalton. All signs point to Kurt and Blaine becoming the new 'It' couple, but for now Darren is coyly saying. "I think as a thematic element, I think it's more interesting to me at this point to see Kurt having a role model in someone he can really truly relate to and whether or not that evolves in some kind of romantic relationship, who knows?"
The flirty message of Blaine singing "Teenage Dream" to Kurt isn't lost on us, but we want to hear another Katy Perry song from the new guy. If this season focuses heavily on Kurt finding confidence and embracing all the things that make him special and unique, why not cover "Firework" on the show?
"This song makes you feel better about yourself," one JSYK reader says. "Good for bad days." Another reader comments, "This song makes me feel so much better about myself." Point made.
